As a nascent subject area, Computer Science, instruction is often canned or applied in blanket fashion to students. As teachers, we are in the process of learning a content area that we never experienced when we were K-12 students. Often teachers are learning CS with their students, necessitating a very different style of teaching as facilitators and guides rather than experts. In an effort to make the work of teaching CS in K-12 more robust and effective, differentiating instruction for all students, we offer this CS - Student-centered Instructional Continuum. The CS-SCIC is the brainchild of Jane Waite, who has graciously offered to be here with us today.
